Coaching

Enter a relationship of deep personal support to step into your power, purpose, and potential.

I work with executives, leaders, change makers, and individuals to navigate the trials and tribulations of running organizations, maintaining healthy relationships, making sense of loss, enacting their dreams, and living with power and purpose.


There are subconscious ways that individuals “leak” power, leaving them feeling tight on time, emotionally drained, and out of alignment with themselves. Through transformational coaching techniques honed over a decade with master teachers, I help my clients to see the ways that they are creating inefficiencies and go to the root issue so that they can live more fully and authentically.


We would be a good fit if you:

  • Are ready to do your inner work and look directly at your challenges
  • Need someone to hold you accountable and support you through transition, challenge, or leveling-up
  • Want to grow your capacity to hold multiple perspectives and make sense of complexity
  • Are looking to find a source of perpetual inner stability
  • Want to improve your skills for dealing with conflict & building innovative teams
  • Are wanting to integrate & strengthen both rational thinking and intuitive capacity
  • Desire to have bigger impact and embody your mission more fully
